Rated 5 out of 5 by Coxy Nice modern rooms
When booking this hotel I didn’t realise it was in "main action" of the city, so it is very busy with foot traffic and busy streets all at your door step. Despite this the rooms were very modern and relaxing. Just my style. I did not receive an upgraded room as a Platinum member but that was beyond their control as it was Songkran festival.
As there was no lounge, Happy Hour was served in their bar area which was very good. Their morning buffet was also good. This is one of my favourite hotels in the SPG range in Bangkok because the rooms are very modern.

Rated 5 out of 5 Everything is fine except basic process...
Everything is fine here. The warm greetings and welcoming smile on staff, the facilities, the clean environment, and etc...
Only one thing needs to be improved is receptionists' training on basic things. I checked in on April 11 staying for 4 days and a lady receptionist provided the check-in service to me. As a Gold member reserved the room via official website, there should be some benefits for me to selected from such as free internet or 250 starpoints....
This lady (sorry I can't remember her name) just wanted to sell the starpoint upgrade options to me but not ask me to select from the member offerings... Only when I mentioned if I can choose the member benefits, she figured out that SPG has this offerings.
I must say her attitude and smiles were very nice, but profession goes before the warm feeling. The staff training on basic processes need to be improved and the rest are already at the highest level.
Yes, I will come back again and hope the basics can be picked up soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Yusuke Nice friendly stuff and perfect location
Especially for SongKran season, this hotel is just perfect for everything.
Nice and friendly staffs are always give us the bath towels at entrance since we do really wet after water play. and it just 5 mins to main water playing area from hotel on foot. NO TAXI, NO BTS, NO Tuk Tuk, it is very important for Songkran season.
And 24H gym is surely big plus!

Rated 5 out of 5 by mrpoon One of the better breakfasts
Really, one of the better breakfasts among Starwood hotels. Perhaps, they should have more offerings in terms of local cuisine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JustATraveler Don't tell anybody!
- Nice rooms and suites.
- Good reception staff.
- Very good buffets and good service.
- Excellent bar and bartenders.
I hope the word does not go around too much.
Downside: the location.
The music ("world") used to be excellent and added to the sophistication of the hotel. It was recently changed to old hits (Sheraton type of music).

Rated 5 out of 5 by NealZ Best hotel in the entire SPG Portfolio
This was my fourth stay at Le Meridien Bangkok in the past 2 years. It is, without question, my absolute favorite hotel in the entire SPG Portfolio, anywhere in the world. This hotel has the most friendly, professional, and attentive staff of any hotel. I feel like a welcomed friend coming home every time I return to Le Meridien Bangkok.
I'm very demanding and I have very high expectations. Le Meridien Bangkok exceeds my expectations in every category... and it just keeps getting better
